A big game between two of the top five teams in the Brazillian Serie A. Third-ranked Palmeiras is anchored by the league's second-best defense (15 goals allowed in 17 matches). They bring that defense with them on the road, on a 3-1-5 run away from home in league action with ties at Vasco da Gama (2-2), Santos (0-0), Atlético Mineiro (1-1), Internacional (0-0), and Athletico Paranaense (2-2). Their seven DRAWS are tied for the most in the league. Fifth-ranked Fluminense is outscoring opponents 22-16 through 17 matches with the league's fourth-best defense (16 goals given up). Fluminense is on a 5-0-5 run at home, including a pair of 0-0 ties versus second-ranked Flamengo. The last two meetings between these teams played in 2022 ended up in 1-1 DRAWS and another is likely in this evenly-matched showdown. Play Fluminense/Palmeiras to DRAW.
